An Artfully Simple Tidal Wave

Goodness, it’s been a while. Since I last talked to you guys I have gained a new writing job and a new crochet design job. I can tell you about the second one in a couple of months, but suffice it to say I’m a little bit excited. I tend to favor the “squeal and jump” variety of expressing my excitement, so you’ll just have to imagine me doing that now…


Today I’m sharing some photos of a scarf I made two years ago, and for whatever reason, never got around to posting. At the end of my French 200 series, I wanted to make a gift for my professor, after spending three classes with her. (In the term system, there are three classes in a series, so French 201, 202, and 203.) She was a really classy lady, always dressed nicely even at 9 AM on a Monday morning, so I tried to make something that would live up to her style.


This is made with the Artfully Simple Infinity Scarf pattern from Moogly, which  have loved for years. As the name implies, it’s really simple but gorgeous. I love the diagonal lines and how it highlights the long color changes in this yarn. It was an absolute delight to make.


And I love the button detail in the pattern, because who doesn’t want to incorporate a cool button into something? My mom lets me swipe stuff from her button stash, which is probably where I dug up this one.

The great thing about making a scarf for somebody else is that you can use yarn that you wouldn’t wear yourself. I got a nicer skein of yarn than I usually use. I think it was Red Heart Unforgettable in Tidal. This yarn is just a little bit too itchy for me to wear myself, but I’m super sensitive. It’s always good to check if your recipient has fiber allergies, but I didn’t have that opportunity with my teacher, so I just hoped for the best. This yarn is still 100% acrylic, though, so it’s a pretty safe bet.

I just love how this fabric looks! My professor loved it and said it would be great for traveling. I hope she’s had a good couple years. It’s so weird that I’m in fourth-year French now. And I’m actually the French tutor at my college. Weird, I tell you, just weird.

Tell me how your November has been going! Thanks for reading, and hope you have a lovely weekend.

  1. Ooh, lovely! I love the colour changes in the yarn, and somehow it looks very French to me, maybe it’s the sophisticated lacy pattern? The button? I don’t know. I actually tried learning French for a semester recently, but I can’t say I’ll continue with it! It’s great to hear you like it, though. You have a lovely weekend too! 😀


    1. Goodness, will i ever get the hang of replying to comments in a timely manner? It’s so cool that you’ve started learning French! Even if you don’t continue with it, I think learning a language is a really valuable experience. But the French language is just downright infuriating at times, lol. Like, have you seen the spelling of “qu’est-ce que c’est?” 😛 Thanks so much for your comment!

    1. Thank you, River! I love the comparison to fishing netting, I didn’t think of that, but it’s right on theme. This yarn is a dream to work with, I love when it does the color changes for me!
